Ellis is credited as the writer for all four seasons of the show. The news about allegations against him broke about two months after he'd tweeted that he'd finished his work on season 4.
Overall, I loved the show, so I'm really looking forward to this new one. Hopefully, the creative team shakeup won't result in any drop-off in quality, and any changes in tone will blend in naturally with the change in setting. There hasn't been any release date announced, right? I think I saw a news article somewhere listing it for 2022, but it wasn't clear to me if that was confirmed.
The good thing about Castlevania, is that thanks to the games it can easily be an anthology and no series has to be exactly like the last one. So I'm fine with seeing how a new team handles Rondo and likely SOTN, there's gonna be A LOT of expectations on this series, between the love of the first 4 seasons and the love of those two games.
Look, I know when it comes to Metroidvania games, part of the experience is unavoidably going to contain a certain amount of trial and error exploration as well as a decent dose of backtracking. But I really must express myself when it comes to Harmony of Dissonance.
Hug you, developer's. Hug and and hug the horses you came in on. I hope when you find yourselves burning in the eternal fires of hell and damnation when you die that playing this torture device of a shit-stain on the name of the Castlevania franchise is part of your punishment.
